TeamViewer is a free tool that allows you to take complete control of another PC anywhere in the world from your computer or tablet. It uses two-way connection between two devices through a virtual private network. You can also remote control your own computer from another location on the road, as long as both machines are on and running TeamViewer. Thanks to TeamViewer, you never have to worry about forgetting an important file or document on your home computer. In just a matter of seconds, you can grab that missing file from your home computer. If you're the tech-savvy one in your family, TeamViewer is a great tool to put on a relative's computer, enabling you to provide them with some tech support even if you live across the country. TeamViewer also allows you to hold virtual meetings with multiple participants. This is perfect for a small business meeting for which all the parties are in different locations. All that's needed is for each participant to have TeamViewer installed on their computer or tablet.

TeamViewer works on both 32-bit and 64-bit computers. Setup and connection is fast and easy. Once TeamViewer is installed on both computers, TeamViewer provides a user name and password for each machine. Simply enter each machine's number and password into the other to start a connection. You can also set a personal password that you can easily remember for each computer. The host PC's screen will show a display indicating that the computer is being remotely accessed in the lower right corner. Instant mouse and keyboard access is given without the need for approval. When using TeamViewer, you can run processes, change settings, remove programs, clean the computer and open files, programs, folders and documents.

When you start up TeamViewer, you'll be provided with two options. You can choose a full remote control setting that allows you to perform all of the aforementioned tasks. Alternatively, you can choose the option for file transfer. This option makes it easier for you to grab files in situations where you don't need full control of the other device.

TeamViewer is by far the easiest tool to use for remote control access. It makes file transfer and desktop sharing quick and convenient, without charging a dime. Simply run TeamViewer on both machines, insert your partner's automatic ID, and the connection starts immediately.
